Sometimes our doctors will believe that taking medicine will be the best way to help you for some conditions, for example ADHD or depression.  If this happens your doctor will discuss this with you and your parents or carers first.

The doctor will explain things like:

  • what the medicine will do to help you
  • how it works
  • how long you will take it for
  • how often you will come to CAMHS when you are taking it
  • any possible side effects that could happen. 


The doctor will also discuss alternatives to taking medicine with you.
